  1. Obviously, the J47R doesn't have an AuxZip but layering wise, the two fit together incredibly well. The pattern on the J47 allows for significantly more movement than even some other jackets like the J1A-GT (which is AuxZip compatible).
  2. Anyone have any idea what the difference between last year's J58 and this one might be? Webpage says Gen 1.1.
  3. FW17 will be in two drops like last year. Majority of the collection will be in the first drop, next week. Second drop will be mid October.
  4. From what I've heard, Acronym has been struggling to keep up with demand and quality of production. I've already heard rumors that even FW17 will be in lower quantities than past seasons so it doesn't surprise me that they are taking SS18 off. I assume it's for similar reasons.
  5. For FW17, ACRNM has added a removable hood to the J62-S.
  6. Update: I was able to get the duties reduced to 7.1% under the tariff 6201.93.4700, which works because the jacket is made up of man-made fibers, meets the requirements of Recreational Performance Outerwear, and is water resistant. UPS would not accept 6201.99.8030 because Acronym marked the jacket as "Men's Jacket of Man-Made Fibers (6201.9300)". Not as low as 4.2% but much preferable to 27.7%. Thanks @CARLOOA for the above link, which is how I found the new code.
  7. I've had success in the past season using @CARLOOA's advice on lowering duties into the US, but I'm having a ton of trouble importing my J47R. Talked to several different people but no one wants to accept 6201.99.8030 as the correct code. This is UPS's latest response: "The tariff the importer is suggesting (6201.99.8030) is not correct as that is for other fiber composition with man-made fiber restraints." Anyone else have similar issues and end up successfully reducing the duties?
  8. Anyone else notice in the J1A Acronymjutsu video, Errolson appears to be wearing the J47A for part of the video? Screenshot:
  9. Pretty disappointed right now. I bought a J1A-GT back in April, and just noticed one of the taped seams has torn right by the collar. I know taped seams don't hold up forever but I didn't expect them to start breaking down with less than a year of wear. Has anyone else experienced issues like this? If anyone has a trusted place in NYC to get it fixed, let me know.
  10. I'm convinced Errolson is wearing a size L in the J1A vid. If you look at product shots where he is wearing M, and the video side by side, the sleeve length in the video is much longer.
  11. Washed my J1A-GT for the first time this weekend. Double rinsed and then tumble dried to re-activate the DWR. Can't tell if I'm going crazy or not but the shell feels like it did shrink up a touch in the sleeves and the length. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
  12. Thanks I'll give it a shot. That was my theory as well that the elastic was intentional to keep your body as insulated as possible. However, I don't think making a similar insulator to the J50 is necessarily a bad thing. Especially when they are no longer selling a WS version of the J-50.
  13. I also received my J58-WS this week but I'm not fully sold on the design. As far as warmth goes, the insulation seems relatively warm but won't know until I test it in the field. The seams and articulation are beautiful as always. I also love how the zipper around the collar is hidden from view unless zipped into a shell. My least favorite feature of the jacket is the thin elastic band on the bottom. This makes it extremely tight at the waist (and I am a 30 waist with a M jacket) almost to the point where the zipper starts riding up and curling inward. I would have much preferred a speedlock shock cord hem like the J1A has. If you wear the J58-WS unzipped, the liner also seems to have excess fabric that sticks out on the back side. Kind of like it'd bubbling out. Like Carlooa, my J58 also has a rough edge to the left of the zipper. How did you get rid of that Carlooa? The liner fits decently well under my J1A but leaves little room for any extra layering. I'll definitely be keeping the liner mostly for warmth purposes but I don't plan on wearing the jacket on its own like I originally intended.

    Finally received my APC x Kanye Stonewashed denim in the mail today. The fit is perfect except for the waist which is way too big. If anyone with a smaller size (unworn) would want to trade for a size 32, PM me.
